Bocadito: College Mariachi

There’s a new sound on college campuses. Mariachi Bands are popping up at private universities that are typically known for their a cappella groups. At these colleges with small percentages of latino students, Mariachi bands are not just an extra-curricular but a way for students to share and teach others about their culture.

Ten-year-old Sebastian de la Cruz got a dream gig singing the U.S national anthem “Mariachi style” during this year’s NBA finals. But after his performance, a wave of bigoted remarks soon followed. Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa cheers on the little “Charro” for turning negativity into a chance to showcase his pride.

Check out el Charrito sing at Game 4 of the NBA finals.
